I am a syntactician interested in the form of sentences and in the extent to which form can vary across languages. I am also interested in the relation between meaning and form.

My primary empirical focus is Indo-Aryan languages but recent joint work has also examined Japanese and French.

Currently, I am affiliated with the Georg-August Universität Göttingen in Germany. A recent version of my CV can be accessed here: CV
